Product Managing is not just about behind-the-scenes R&D, it’s about making sure your product is developed in a way that meets the needs of your customers
Done well, product research helps to understand what customers really want, allowing to tailor the product offering to meet demand and give a real competitive edge.
To make a strong imprint one should always know the product well enough, grounding your strategic thinking with the perspective of your likes and dislikes towards the specific products.
Don’t hesitate to talk about your failures, make them into your strength and show them that you are a maker.
And always be curious about products. That’s what product management is about!
